Gary City Council Member Agrees To Plead Guilty To Federal Tax Evasion Charges
Gary city councilwoman Marilyn Krusas has admitted that she failed to file a federal income tax return since 1991, or to pay taxes on more than $232,000 in money she inherited, according to federal prosecutors. Under a plea agreement Krusas reached with federal prosecutors reported by the Northwest Indiana Times, she will admit to failing to pay between $80,000 and $200,000 in federal income taxes. If the federal judge in the case accepts her guilty plea to one felony charge of income tax evasion, she will be forced to forfeit her seat on the council, which she has held since 2000.
